    Default The uses of 'When' and 'While'

    Can 'when' and 'while' be used at the beginning of a sentence?
    Is it correct to write
    1. When John was fishing, he saw someone screaming for help.
    2. One day, while John was fishing he heard someone screaming for help.

    Thanks for the help.
